I think my calm and relaxation I gained while on vacation is rapidly being used up. I have project, after project, after project piling up at work. I can't seem to keep my head above water here. The project from HELL is back, and more fiery than ever. It's a mess trying to keep track of what's been done and what needs to be done. I spent my first few hours yesterday sorting it out, and still more time again this morning. Luckily I'm a very organized person, or I would really be drowning. I'm happy to be busy, I'm happy to have work to do. I am beginning to feel overwhelmed about it though. Mostly it's the fact that a bunch of stuff needs to be finished (at least the first draft) by the end of the week, plus other things need to continue showing progress. It isn't anything I can't handle...and it's often the nature of my profession for things to come all at once like this. I just felt like telling you guys. And yes, I realize writing about it is keeping me from working at the moment, but I needed a little mental break. So here I go, nose to the grindstone once again...with my red cape on (I'm a super hero sometimes, helps me feel important and get through my day). I have a feeling it's going to be a longer than 8-hour work day today.
